I started this boro vest a couple of months ago. You can read about it here. I'm pleased to say I finished stitching the last button in the weekend. There is a lot of stitching in this vest. I can keep on stitching it forever, but I feel that enough is enough. I also would like to wear it this winter. I had a lot of fun transforming the old commercially made vest into a unique one of a kind boro vest. I'm so thrilled...
I reused the original buttons here again. Because I covered over all the button holes I had to remake them in the same positions.
The back view of the vest is not as busy as the front. A few pieces of my indigo dyed fabric, some cotton and some silk, but like a true boro all fabric was vintage.
And here is a close up shot of the vest front. Can you see the indigo moon and some stars? It was such a fun vest to create. I have already started the next vest with eco-dyed fabric. As soon as I baste it all down I will show it to you.
I had a chance to wear my vest on Sunday when we went out for morning tea. It goes perfectly with the shibori scarf...
My apologies to everyone who left comments on the last few posts. I mistakenly deleted some comments from those posts while I was adjusting the setting. It pays to leave everything to Mr Blogger to deal with!!!
Until next time
